Meet Platinum: Marissa Guy

This post is part of a series to help you get to know the members of our team. We’re real people who call Arizona home, not a faceless corporate machine! Enjoy this quick Q&A with a key member of our team…

Tell us about your personal background and family.

I was born and raised in New York and have happily called Scottsdale my home since 1984. Though I treasured seeing the NYC skyline everyday (had a view of the Empire State Building from my bedroom window when growing up), I have come to fall in love with the mountain views that now surround me.

What has your career been like?

My work history has been long and diversified. The majority of my career was spent working as a Psychotherapist in the Managed Healthcare industry. I have held traditional jobs (taught a couple of college level classes) and not so traditional jobs (sold hot dogs and beer at Shea Stadium). I even tried my hand as a Realtor.

I have been with Platinum since February of 2015 and can honestly say this is one of my best and “most fun” positions yet. I love getting to meet and work with so many agents on a daily basis. HomeSmart agents are so dedicated, and I really enjoy being part of the process.

What are your hobbies?

I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and reading. Though I am embarrassed to admit it, I am a mall rat and love to shop. I also love to travel! I was lucky to have had a trip of a lifetime to Paris and Italy a couple of years back and look forward to many more adventures.

What have you learned and would love to share?

I have come to learn that life is about the stretch. “Life begins outside of your comfort zone.” Some of the best times and experiences that I have ever had have been when I have challenged myself.
